They have Gentle Yoga on the beach every morning at 9am and it's absolutely delightful. Just bring your towel and a few dollars for the donation basket. Most everyone wears yoga pants or comfy shorts and a t-shirt. Class is a half hour. I was there for a 10 day stay and had several different instructors and all of them... More

I happened to have been staying about a block and half away from this beautiful beach. It may not be rated as high as Siesta Key Beach but it beats it by being a great place to just lay there soaking up the sun while listening to music and reading a good book. I went every day and it didn't... More

Venice Beach during the week is quiet and relaxing As a Canadian it was refreshing to take a dip in the Ocean - a great refuge from our snowy winter Great change and shower facility

The beach is beautiful and much less crowded than that found at Siesta Key. It is flat enough to allow comfortable walking. We've seen dauphins, beautiful birds and even a manatee from time to time.

We came here to read by the ocean and we're delighted to find good parking until we realized there was a reason for that .....red tide was causing enough irritation that we began coughing before we unloaded the chairs and umbrella. We will try again another day!

I live in Venice and have gone to Venice beach many times. It is a good beach, centrally located and has plenty of parking in contrast to Siesta Key which is crowded and difficult to park. The beach has a food stand which is privately owned and has a few sandwiches, also breakfast. There is ample seating for a snack.... More

Went with friends to the Shark's Tooth Capital of the World beach. Excellent city beach with lifeguards. Free parking. All the shark's teeth you can find. Lot's of fun --super weather helped. Can't say enough good things about Venice beaches!

Free & no charge for parking. Large beach area with life guard stations, public restrooms and consession area for beverages and light food/snacks. Entertainment & dancing music some nights-see entertainment schedule posted at concession area. Drum Circle Sundays starts before sunset - get there early for best parking availability & bring chairs. Also yoga on the beach mornings.
